It’s considered one of the most versatile camcorders available, and the FS700R (which used to retail for $10,000) just saw a massive price slash down to $3999 with a rebate available that would give you a MetaBones EF Smart Adapter as well. The FS700R is capable of shooting some pretty spectacular 1080p HD video, and it is also capable of 4K capture. I think the FS700R’s strongest capability is its incredible slow motion though, as you can get 120 frames per second in 1080, and 120 frames per second in 4K raw with an external recorder. That’s incredible.
Sure, the FS700R is starting to feel a bit long in the tooth, and the price cut is likely a sign that we will see something shiny and new hit the market soon. However, the FS700R is a great, great camera that will continue to be great going forward.
